over the fiscal cliff, as it's called, what happens to the economy? >> look, if we go over the fiscal cliff, it will be very bad, hugely negative for the stock market, which is a source of people's wealth. people will feel poorer. if we go over for a short period of time and adjust it, we can repair some of those things. but what you won't repair is people's attitudes towards the united states as a responsible debtor. and that's very important. if we show that we're so irresponsible that we can't manage our affairs, people have no recourse but to invest with us today but they're going to work awfully hard to find alternatives very quickly. >> pelley: lloyd blankfein is among the world's most influential bankers, but he rarely does interviews. goldman sachs is the most successful investment bank on wall street with earnings last year of $4.4 billion. washington playing with fire? >> yes. yes. washington is playing with fire, and you don't get-- it's not like a football game where you get the two-minute warning. they don't-- you know, they don't tell you when you have-- you only get one

because of the fear of the fiscal cliff and higher taxes. in some cases they are laying off, those are troublesome things. even if they resolve the fiscal cliff, higher taxes will mean less spending in the economy and less reasons to invest and hire more people. melissa: i don't even think resolving the fiscal cliff would make that much of a difference because businesses still face uncertainty scare them of making decisis. first it was about obamacare, and they were so upset and didn'tt to spend any money. and then the election, they still didn't want to do anything. resolving the fiscal cliff will not make them feel any better because the resolution will be higher taxes. >> absolutely. and that is where businesses throw out, chamber of commerce, is ask why they are not doing something, it is uncertainty. they ar paid to manage in uncertainty. there's just a lot of nonsense. the economy is not moving along very well. the discussions will not resolve the fundamental problem from exploding entitlements and mammoth increase in spending imposed on america and now want americans to validate, that is why they are not investing. melissa: it is so true. a timed everybody blamed the weather. unseasonably co

. people talk about the fiscal cliff and problems in the economy. that's a big question, but profits are already shrinking and that looks like a bad risk-reward trade. >> from a trade perspective, which is entirely different, there is an argument on to be made that actually if we get some kind of agreement on fiscal cliff, naturally there would be some kind of bounce. >> i would assume so. but how long it lasts is a different question. even then you'll be tightening fiscal policy. so the best you can hope for is very low growth anyway. and they'll be looking at s&p companies. activity is a lot weaker than it was and that will put pressure on the top line. which is pretty much what you've been seeing from a lot of companies that have been announcing 46- >> so you'll also be underweight emerging stocks, as well. >> we've been underweight emerging stocks since january of last year. and that is mostly ---le valuation question in part, but mostly it's a question of china and slowing chinese growth. so if you look at the performance of industrial commodities and emerging stocks, they fit l

did not get anywhere. the economy, the fiscal cliff bear, and asia is now a new priority. he has a lot of other priorities. does he really want to do this? unless there is a reason to do this -- in some ways, when you look back, you can say that there is something to be said for the united states sitting back and the parties coming to intervene. this has happened in some ways here. even the israelis who used to think that, you know, with obama intervening, he will put pressure on them. when they are in a bind, as this was the case, and your needs to be some political horizon, or they go into -- cat political benefit out of this. they still need the united states. in some ways the parties themselves will have to learn that if the united states is indispensable. they have got to get involved. the with the actual negotiations that happen now, between israel and hamas, the united states was not a direct party. any reason is that the united states does not have a relationship with hamas. considers a terrorist organization, and that is the party that is the principal fight to party with

fiscal cliff, and if there is a deal, what could that mean for the economy as a whole? >> well, you know, i think at the optimal outcome is not to raise taxes on anybody. i do think that if the president has his way and those taxes go up on investors and businesses, it's hard to see where the jobs are going to come from next year. as you know, we still have over 20 million people without a full-time job. so i think getting around this crisis in a way where everybody agrees not to raise taxes on anybody, we go into 2013, maybe that could be the year. and, boy, what a great christmas present this would be, if we actually throw out the tax system and start over. i mean, this is my, this is my new year's wish, that we could junk this tax system, get something that's pro-growth, that creates jobs for every american who wants a job. rick: so on a scale of 1-10, how optimistic are you that we're going to yet a deal like that in. >> oh, i think we will get a deal. it could take a while. you and i could be talking on christmas eve, but i think they will get a deal, and i've got my fingers cr

the holiday spending with the fiscal cliff. is there a chance that if we get this $586 billion or whatever is expected to come in, that it has a lasting effect on the economy? >> you know, i think -- i would like to say yes. and given holiday -- looking at last year, we saw about 600,000 jobs added for the holiday. about that number is expected this year as well. jobs are good for the economy. spending is good for the economy. but whether we can maintain that, whether a deal can be reached on that cliff remains to be seen. we could see of the u.s. fall into recession. hopefully that won't be the case. hopefully, you know, a deal will be reached and we can move forward. >> that's probably the most pressing issue right now. morgan, thank you for bringing us up to date on the retail angle. >>> coming up, health care hang-ups, as major ceos try to circumvent the president's health care law. and who will run in 2016. contenders are already jockeying for position. we want to know what you're thankful for this thanksgiving, so send us a tweet at #why i'm thankful.
